There are opportunities for U.S. pork in a global market. Will the TPP be one of those opportunities? Ambassador Darci Vetter, Chief Agricultural Negotiator for the U.S. Trade Representative, points out that global trade is moving with or without the U.S.

Ambassador Vetter shares metrics from the American Farm Bureau that says $5.8 Billion in cash receipts will be lost by just the livestock industry if Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is not passed and implemented.

And other countries are not standing still, pointing out that China is promoting its Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP), a trade agreement that does not contain many of the safeguards and requirements that U.S. farmers want.
